24000 block Van Ry Boulevard: A man reported that he was shot in the face with a Taser while driving near the Studio 6 hotel. The victim told police that he had just moved to Washington State from Arizona and was driving slowly in the snow because of his lack of experience with such conditions. A white car reportedly drove up very quickly behind the victim and then pulled next to him, at which point the victim explained why he was driving slowly. The suspect told the victim to get out the car and when the victim refused, the victim saw a white light flash in his face and heard a “pop.” The suspect then sped away northbound on Van Ry Boulevard. Officers arriving on the scene observed a Taser cartridge in the victim’s bottom lip. The victim said he would drive himself to the hospital, where the Taser probe was removed.
